Ken Karunas, who won accolades for his role as Dhanush's son in Asuran (2019), is reuniting with Dhanush in the upcoming Vaathi directed by Venky Atluri. 

The young actor spoke about his working experience with Dhanush, his aspirations of working in Bollywood and reuniting with Vetri Maaran for Rajan Vagaiyara.

On teaming again with Dhanush, Ken says, "Getting to work with the leading actor like Dhanush sir is a dream come true. There is so much that I have grasped from him during the filming of Asuran which has opened doors to a wide understanding of acting. Infact, I have worked with him in his upcoming movie called Vaathi and I'm really looking forward to it."

Ken, who is the son of Tamil actor and singer Karunas, dreams of making it in Bollywood someday.  

"Yes, it would be nice if I get the opportunity," he says. "I don't want to restrict myself to a particular boundary. Generally, I would love to work on projects with new and different content. Shah Rukh Khan sir is my inspiration in Bollywood."

Talking about getting a break at a young age, he says, "I have been blessed to start my career with such a bang opener. I thank my director Vetri Maaran sir for giving me this wonderful opportunity and the journey is exciting. The journey that I have chosen is the one filled with learnings, the path that has skills and challenges from which I can learn from. I feel continuous learning is the key for my future."
